Naval
For the shipbuilding industry, numerical simulation has become anessential incomplement to model tests, sometimes replacing them on some projects. The benefits in terms ofdesign time decrease, performance improvements and design risks reduction are significant.

Offshore
Numerical simulation has an important position in the offshore industry, allowing model tests to be completed. It allows many  parameters to be evaluated in a very short period of time, and is also used to investigate scale effects, and complex situations that cannot easily be reproduced in model tests.

Sailing and motor yachts
Naval architects are nowadays very familiar with numerical simulation which aids them in the design of efficient and thrifty sailboats or motor yachts. The benefits for their customers, in terms of reduced fuel consumption, performance and comfort at sea, allow a return on investment within months.

Marine Energies
Marine energy is an important source of renewable energy around the world. HydrOcean provides services in connection with the École Centrale Nantes, in order to evaluate and optimize the systems related to the energy of waves and currents.
Our design aid devices specific to marine energy are fast and reliable and represent an economic alternative to tests in the wave tank or at sea.

Our originality and vision:

  • We dispose of a wide range of numerical tools validated on many test cases in order to respond accurately and quickly to the issues confronting you.

  • We aim to develop specific numerical solvers for marine applications with our R & D team, in partnership with an internationally renowned laboratory, the Laboratoire de Mécanique des Fluides(Mechanical Fluids laboratory) -Ecole Centrale Nantes / CNRS.

  • We use and develop these numerical tools with engineers and PhD graduates in fluid dynamics simulation applying their highly specific knowledge of the marine fields and the viability of situations.
